Mary Kay was born and raised in Kingston, New York, a small town located on the Hudson River in Ulster County. She has always desired a career in the legal field. From her beginning as an intern at her father and brother’s New York law firm, to spending time working as a Public Defender in La Grande, Oregon, and finally settling into private practice in Clark County, Mary Kay has always been focused on being an effective and dynamic trial attorney.

Outside of the office Mary Kay enjoys theater, hiking, opera, spending time with her dog, and cheering on her beloved Washington Husky Football team. Mary Kay and her husband, local attorney Mike Higgins, also loves traveling to Montana to visit their daughter at Carroll College and to California to visit their son at Shasta College. Mary Kay and Mike are avid history buffs who enjoy visiting civil war battlefields. These past few summers they began visiting many of the sites along the Lewis and Clark Trail.
